WHY 
Adolescents and youth need more opportunities to civically engage, including digitally, and to voice their opinions on issues that affect them. UNICEF Serbia is organizing a workshop on the use of mobile journalism and vlogging as forms of digital storytelling in order to encourage youth to share their perspective and opinions on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
